Data visualisation through the cloud
Pictures in pictures in clouds
Video If a picture tells a thousand words then data visualisation should be just the gig for the digital dirge of data clogging up your systems. It should give you an idea about what your data is telling you, and it should tell you things you didn’t even know you could know.
That’s the theory .
A development company called Shoothill in Shrewsbury, UK, focuses on such challenges and regularly deals with vast terabytes of data for projects - including this one for UNHCR, and this one on The Battle of Britain.
So with those data volumes to deal with, it felt like the cloud could provide a natural, fitting home, for those data sets – saving time and management costs.
Tim Phillips, from The Register, went to talk to Shoothill to find out how their visualisation projects are working out and why they jumped on the cloud. Watch this case study below.
